Featuring action-packed adventures from the Third Earth, the legend of the ThunderCats and their struggle to defeat the evil Mumm-Ra continues in ThunderCats: The Complete Second Season, Volume 1. Included in the collection are the multi-episode sagas "ThunderCats Ho!," "Mumm-Ra Lives" and "ThunderCubs," along with 15 other standalone episodes that continue the mythology of this classic animated series. After a hopeful end to Mumm-Ra, the ThunderCats imagine they can live on their planet in peace … yet they are in for a dreadful surprise. Not only is Mumm-Ra alive, and more intent on destroying the Cats than ever, but the ThunderCats' fearsome enemies - the Luna-Taks of Plun-Darr - are released from the lava pits where they were have been entombed. Will Lion-O's wits and his Sword of Omens be enough to protect them? And what will happen on the Day of the Eclipse when the Third Earth and all its inhabitants are susceptible to Mumm-Ra's evil spells? You won't want to miss a moment.]]>
Four more individual episodes round out the set, but an additional 30 were produced before the series came to a close in 1986. Quality-wise, the episodes are full-frame and presented in Dolby Digital mono, but lack the remastering that some fans may have hoped for. Extras are somewhat more irreverent this time around: there's a nine-minute featurette on the series' composer, Bernie Hoffner, who is interviewed along with several producers, as well as the pop band the Rembrandts (best known for performing the theme for Friends), who are also seen banging out a power-pop version of the Thundercats theme. Hoffner also gets his own "video," in which he provides a solo take on the song. --Paul Gaita
- 34 episodes on six discs
- The music of Thundera featurette
- The Rembrandts music video of the Thundercats theme song
- Bernie Hoffer: Live! - the composer performs the theme song

The introduction of new characters is fantastic. After watching the mutants battle the Thundercats fifty times, it is very welcome. What I don't like though is how many of the characters from season one become nearly non existent. The mutants pretty much disappear. Although, Mumm-ra calls on them occasionally to do his bidding and Vultureman trys numerous times to join the Luna-Tacs. While I am on the subject of things happening many times, I should probably mention how many times Mumm-ra switches bodies or takes on the form of someone and fools the thundercats every time. He does this at least once every couple of episodes. They always seem to be after some kind of artifact too. The Book of Omens, the keystone, the thundercats necklace, the gorgon mask, etc. They also enter the cave of time often enough for my liking. Also, get used to watching the Thundercats fight against each other. Oftentimes, you will see a combo of many of these things.
One other thing I want to mention is how the plots become more ridiculous. Remember how hard it was to repair Lion-O's sword in season 1? Well, Bengali can easily repair it. Mumm-ra has a time machine and uses it very foolishly. Lion-O's sword seems to solve every problem. Finally, my favorite one is when Snarfer goes to get Mexican food.
Lastly, I want to talk about the bonus features on these DVD's. I think they are not as good as part 2 of season 1, but certainly better than part 1.Read more ›

Don't get me wrong but personally i'd like to see more special features (what's this about The Rembrands?Ok they are fans but...who invited them?!)
The other thing i didn't like was that they didn't respect the original drawings and in the front of the DVD's they have new versions from the Thundercats.
I didn't like that at all since they are not as good as the originals
Other than the above,it's way cool to have THE Thundercats finally in your collection.
iT'S A must have!
Buy it NOW!
The boxes are really nice and some of the sets even have holograms on them. They have been copied over very nicely. GREAT buy and would recommend it not only to 80's children but also to the younger generation.
